While doing some, er, online shopping this weekend (I was actually looking for a child-friendly nativity set, inspired by one of your ideas!) I found this.
And I had to have it for my Vivi.
For some reason, I liked the one with black hair better.
me Vivi Baby Stella, I got a little feeding set. The pieces attach to her mouth with magnets.
Call it a late birthday present.
Or an early Christmas present.
Whatever you call it, I’m taking it all to China with me for Vivi.
Next, I took Jane’s advice and bought some Magna-tiles for my kiddos. The reviews were what sold me… people obviously love their Magna-tiles.
I got this set for Shepherd.
He loves cars. And he loves taking things apart.
He should really love these.
And I got this bigger set for, well, I’m not sure who it’s for.
Sometimes I buy gifts for one child and they end up going to another. But I think several of my kiddos would be pumped to open these on Christmas morning. And the fact that several of my kids might actually play with these together… well, double bonus.
I also bought these for my husband. They’re not really for Christmas, because I suspect he’ll rip into the box as soon as it arrives.
My husband loves shoes. And it’s his only weakness, if you could even call it that, so I indulge him whenever he has a hankering for a new pair of shoes.
After all, he does earn the dough around here.
They’re not nearly as cute and cuddly as Vivi’s gift, true. But if any of you are looking for a ruggedly handsome (and waterproof) pair of boots to wear while snowblowing and/or chopping wood in sub-zero temperatures, I thought I’d share where I got them.
4 presents down.
5,967 to go.
